The hardwearing design will appeal to many who spend time outdoors. The Rubidoux shorts provide stretch for comfort but also have abrasion resistance to protect you. Versatility is obvious in the range of features included with these shorts.

Marmot says

Rugged and reliable, the lightweight Men's Rubidoux Shorts are the ultimate hiking shorts for beginners and experts alike. This pair offers the stretch fabric that’s crucial when climbing, yet is also constructed with nylon that resists abrasions and protects your skin from sharp edges and trail debris. When your morning hike turns into an all-day adventure, built-in UPF 50 will keep you protected from the sun’s rays. The elastic waist offers a secure and comfortable fit when you're wearing a harness. A gusseted crotch provides extra mobility when you make your next move. The side drop-in pocket keeps climbing tools handy.

Our Verdict

Marmot's Rubidoux Shorts provide as much protection as you can get from a pair of shorts. The extra long 12 inch legs give you loads of coverage while the fabric has a UPF 50 for sun protection and is also durable enough to protect you from abrasions from rough surfaces. Whilst protection is important, these shorts are still really comfortable with a gusseted crotch and blend of stretch materials allowing freedom of movement. The elasticated waist band adds to this comfort and a number of good sized and well placed pockets add practicality to it. These are certainly not the lightest in terms of weight but they have been fantastic for some of our team who need the extra protection when they are pushing themselves on their adventures.
